I was motivated to write this article because of a piece I saw in the Monitor Newspaper of 22nd June 2016, page 10 – ‘What does the Middle Income Status mean?’ by Matsiko Kahunga. He argued quite eloquently about the futility of statistics in describing economic phenomenon and illustrated how a country with two people, Mr. Bucks and Mr. Pauper, can lead a deceptive measure that assigns an income to both that can take Mr. Pauper – one of the parties 500 years to earn. While this is true, I would want to add a rejoinder that takes this debate in another direction.
